Other Meeting Information:
All reservations must be made by 4PM on Friday, February 10th. All reservations require prepayment with a credit card. Please contact Martha Paalman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-527-2314 if you have questions.
Meetings require a guaranteed headcount. That means if someone makes a meeting reservation and then does not attend, your chapter has to absorb the costs associated with that reservation. Unfortunately your chapter has experienced an increase in no-shows. As a result, your Board has decided that pre-payment will be required for all meetings. Unless cancellation is received prior to the reservation cut-off date, a member will be responsible for payment even if they do not attend the meeting. Exceptions due to certain extenuating circumstances may be granted on a case by case basis at the discretion of your Board. Weather-related cancellations are at the descretion of the current president and the meeting's speaker. Refunds will be dependent on venue and other conditions and will be evaluated as required.
Additionally, there are a number of benefits to being an IMA member. One of those benefits should always be the ability to attend a meeting for less cost than a non-member. Accordingly the chapter will begin enforcing the non-member pricing policy.
